Cool - its certainly our intention to try support Geronimo on as many 
platforms as possible. Being 100% pure Java it should work on any 
suitable JVM. We should ensure that any scripts for starting/stopping 
Geronimo will run on all platforms. Also it might be worth 
investigating any good daemon/server support for Geronimo (e.g. to 
deploy Geronimo as a Windows Service or as a unix daemon and so forth 
for easier systems management).
